Ask a Plumber

I am installing a kitchen sink in a different location and it is impossible to hook up with main air vent. Is it ok to go with automatic air vent?

    If you are installing the sink in Alberta there is provision in the building code to allow for an automatic air vent. A permit should be pulled for this job and the inspector will be looking to see if there were any possible ways to hook up to the main air vent. If there is not it is ok to use an automatic air vent.
